This lively value-driven pub sits in a prime location. The Victoria has a strong focus on sports, teams and a rhythm of the week, after a recent investment the site is perfectly suited to this character-packed pub, which commands a faithful following from its regulars but could also accommodate a broader clientele. Great weekend entertainment and a no-nonsense drinks range should be the heroes at the Victoria.
The Victoria is an attractive community pub, with good signage, an attractive relief portrait of Queen Victoria and an eye-catching turret and weather vane. Inside, there’s an open plan lounge, which will feature banquette seating, vertical drinking tables, and loose seating. The weekend entertainment, which will be a key driver at here, will be greatly enhanced by the additional of a built-in lighting rig and music system. The traditional servery and back bar have a huge amount of character and have been tastefully built into the investment, while the pub’s pool room/smaller public bar is already in excellent order. The Victoria offers free WiFi and Sky Sports. Outside, the car park can accommodate 12 vehicles.
The domestic accommodation consists of four bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Victoria benefits from a prime location, being set among shops, services and community housing, which provide a steady stream of walk-in trade. The locals are dedicated to their sports teams, with pool and darts groups meeting at the pub regularly. There’s also a weekly quiz, which many residents consider a fixture. Karaoke and discos should also be part of the pub’s brand. The Victoria is close to takeaways and other food outlets, so a food offer at the pub would be superfluous to requirements.
The ideal retailer here will be an inspiring team leader with strong business acumen. You’ll need a passion for retail, a desire to work at the heart of the community and the ability to set good standards.
